SCD: Week 22


After a few weeks of gaining or sticking I lost 6lbs this week - perhaps due to being really strict about not eating after 8:30 at night.

Got accosted by a store detective in Boots, Upper Parliament Street who accused me of taking stuff of the shelves. I did to be fair. MY keys, MY loose change, MY travel card etc. which i placed there while I weighed myself. No apology from the 'private dick'. Hoping to receive one from the manager...

Overall I've lost

17.3 kg
2.9 stone
37lbs

one of my pairs of jeans don't fit, I've had to punch 2 extra holes in a belt and I've bought the 1st 2 'large' T-shirts I've owned in probably 20 years.

Nottingham 10k

Survived! 
59:12.
Help! by The Beatles was playing as I crossed the starting line. I took that as a good omen. Got nerve spasms in my top lip after the race which made me think I was having a stroke. Finished just in front of a man that threw up at the finish line.

Just Found Out



...the chorus of The Weight by The Band is 

Take a load off Fanny

not Annie.

I feel so let down.

SCD: Week 14

Lost another lb. So I've lost

11.4kg
1 stone 11lbs
or 25lbs.

Went for my first (park) run in around 2 months. My hip's not really getting any better, so what the hell. I came 227th at the ParkRun. Got lapped by the winner while I was still on my first lap. Good times.

Campbell's Soup


Today, after 48 years on this blob of spit and sand I finally found out the correct lyrics to Rhinestone Cowboy

I'd always thought it went

"Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And all sorts comin' over the snow"

it's "offers comin' over the phone"

Makes a lot more sense.

SCD Week 8


[Bad Ass Breakfast @Warsaw Diner. - My ass was perfectly fine...]

It's official (according to the doctor) that I've done something unpronouncable to my hip - and the only cure is rest. So no running probably for the next 2 weeks.

Had a pretty big cheat day and spent half of it working at the Royal Concert Hall with a few beers after to celebrate the end of a long and challenging project.


So I put on 2 lbs, 4 inches and 0.8 BMI. Gonna have to be really strict and do what upper body exercise I can.

erm... still 'Before'? [2017]
